The Carter is open today, from noon to 5 p.m.
Sandy Rodriguez in Isolation explores the healing power of art with 30 new works on paper created by the Los Angeles–based painter during her recent Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency and the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Artist Stephanie Syjuco's site-specific, multimedia installation transforms images of renowned works from the Carter’s collection and investigates narratives of national identity. Stephanie Syjuco: Double Vision reconsiders mythologies of the American West and reveals how these works and their presentation within a museum can perpetuate colonial lore.
When you enter the Museum, take a moment to marvel at James Surls’ otherworldly sculpture Seven and Seven Flower, a complex portrait of family, land, and self.
Commissioned for the Carter, this large-scale, site-specific installation looks like frozen, Technicolor vapor. Created out of more than 80 miles of multicolored thread, Plexus no. 34 draws attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the Museum’s Atrium.
The Carter houses one of the great collections of American art, from historical landscapes captured on canvas to city streets seen through the lens of a camera. We’re regularly changing out these works, so each time you visit, you know you’ll encounter something you haven’t seen before.
